Black's Guide to Yorkshire, 1862

Black's Guides were travel guide books published by the Adam and Charles Black firm of Edinburgh (later London) beginning in 1839.[1] The series' style tended towards the "colloquial, with fewer cultural pretensions" than its leading competitor Baedeker Guides.[2] Contributors included David T. Ansted, Charles Bertram Black, and A.R. Hope Moncrieff.
